How A Door Closer Works

By installing a door closer, your door will be easy to open and close no matter how heavy they might be. A door closer that's properly installed will provide minor resistance as the user opens the door, providing them with an idea of how heavy the door is. After the initial resistance, the door will easily glide open. Once resistance is no longer applied by the user, the door will return gently return to its frame with the help of the door closer's spring.
